Thousands of Kobe Bryant fans flocked to the National Taiwan University Sports Center Wednesday to greet the visiting NBA superstar.

Bryant was at the sports center to coach dozens of young local players at a summer basketball camp as part of his one-day visit to the island.

The Lakers’ star give pointers to some 30 young players on their footwork, agility, and ball skills.

Bryant gave four of the players a pair of his new sneakers and then offered to give each of the 30 players a pair of sneakers if one of the four could hit a free throw.

The player who volunteered nailed the shot – earning himself a  hug from Bryant and new sneakers for all the players.
